A lovely pub off the beaten track. Wine was good, food okay, service excellent. Very clean and staff, especially Alex who deliverer an extra glass of wine to the table, were outstanding. Popular after 5 pm but very relaxing 4 ish. Well worth a visit.

On a hot summer evening there was no space for standing but plenty of space in the cool interior. Friendly staff, good range of drinks and prices not too bad. The food looked good.

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
